SE sites have associated chat rooms. This site's main one is RPG General Chat. Check it out!
SE chat supports feeds, which shows up as little ticker pop-ups from time to time.
Since really we want the chat (like every site feature) to be useful to the users, it makes sense to have the users choose which popups show up in chat.
Vote for feeds!
Pretty straightforward procedure, really.
- Click on the feed links to see what content the feeds will be posting to the site.
- Vote up feeds you personally want to see.
- Just ignore the ones you don't want to see.
- Save downvotes for when you think something is actively annoying rather than just irrelevant to your interests. (I recommend adding a comment if you do this.)
(This is meant to be a less-formal variant of the community ads procedure. Note that moderators/room owners will have to go in and make the changes by hand.
There is no magic vote number for now; it's just "play it by ear so that chat has feeds but isn't too full of them." BESW SAYS: Since I'm the chat owner now I'm semi-formalizing it: 4 votes gets you on the ticker, with a lower bar for feeds run by rpg.se citizens.)
If you think there's a feed that should show up in general chat, add it as a new answer here. One feed per answer. Feed suggestions should be pitches telling us why we'd like the feed in our ticker, providing useful information like general focus, update frequency (feeds which update many times a day are not popular with the chat), and particularly interesting examples of posts.
